Do you see how stupid this looks when you put it in writing????

Yep.. Yes, we do.

Re: New Solar Theory Predicts Global Cooling

Indeed. Looking at the HadCRUT4 annual data series, the slope for 1970-2000 is 0.17°/decade while the temperatures since then have a slope of -0.01°/decade.

I would call that 'obviously divergent'. BEST usually does

Re: New Solar Theory Predicts Global Cooling

And since AGW is the hypothesis requiring proof, then no statistical warming means no evidence for the hypothesis.

You're a bit smarter than this. There's a lot of other evidence for the hypothesis. For instance - you could [more]

...And yes, the oceans are warming, and this is a good thing. The more heat the oceans absorb the less the surface warms. Put another way, the climate sensitivity is lower.

And that explains why there is more ice than before because as we all know the warmer the water the more ice there will be

I'm sorry, BT, but pretending the hiatus doesn't exist…that dog doesn't hunt any more. The AR5 even has a section on it. There have been many papers trying to explain the why, so let's move on, okay?

Just to be clear, the AR5 talks [more]

Re: New Solar Theory Predicts Global Cooling

Science says it has not warmed.

No. Science says that we don't know. That you can't tell, from just the surface temperature data alone, whether it has warmed since 1998 or not. The positive trend is not statistically [more]

Re: Deny for big bucks!

We are talking about the likely consequences, and timing and what to do about it. That is the whole topic.

Re: New Solar Theory Predicts Global Cooling

Look Ben Solar is talking absolute heresy, fancy thinking that the sun has something to do with the weather. We all know that it is C02, and soley CO2.

Methinks you have constructed a strawman. Solar, GHG, volcanoes, and a bunch of [more]

Re: New Solar Theory Predicts Global Cooling

Perhaps we should just take Ben at his word and not do further research. After all, if fluctuations of TSI could explain the recent cooling, then it could also easily explain the warming of the 90s.

Well, it's going to be hard for TSI [more]

Re: Climate = 30 years

More bull. The residence time of CO2 in the atmosphere is 5 years. Meaning, that on the average, after 5 years from the time a CO2 molecule is released into the atmosphere, it is gone. Gone through photosynthesis, ocean absorption [more]

Re: Climate = 30 years

You can tell that the temperature rise from baseline (whatever that is) until 25 years ago is at least 1/3 of the total temperature rise that we can expect (and the total temperature rise will probably be less).

Nope. The CO2 emitted [more]

Re: Climate = 30 years

Bull. You are not going to find a 25 year old CO2 molecule in the atmosphere. The residence time of CO2 in the atmosphere is 5 years.

CO2 regularly moves around between the ocean, biosphere and atmosphere. This is not news. [more]

Re: Climate = 30 years

About 30% of all fossil-fuel CO2 has been emitted since the beginning of the so-called "pause", starting in 1998. This is about 450 gigatonnes CO2, but the temperature hasn't gone up very much since 1998.

Re: There is no consensus (III)

There's currently NO evidence of sensitivity of 6C per doubling. There is evidence for a sensitivity of under 1C per doubling.

What evidence? Not from the models, nor from paleoclimate data, nor from the observational data. [more]
